Back to School Album



Remember the joy of the first day of school with this Back to School Album. Made using simple paper-folding techniques, this project is great for kids to do with their parents for at school for their first arts and crafts time! Let the kids decorate their mini album however they'd like, and fill it with photos, notes, and other memories from their first day back. This also makes a precious time capsule gift for when your little one eventually graduates high school or college.
